Diversity at the University of Maryland Baltimore
The University of Maryland Baltimore strives for diversity among students, faculty members, and employees. Nearly 5,500 students enrolled in the university last fall. Our students' ages range from the early 20s to the late 60s and 34 percent are from minority groups. Seventy percent of our students are women.
Student organizations at both the school and the campus level address the interests and needs of members of religious and ethnic groups, women, and individuals with a range of sexual orientations. Throughout the year, events such as World Fest, the PanAfrican Festival, European culture nights, a Chinese New Year's celebration, speakers, book discussions, and gatherings give students and faculty and staff members a chance to learn about cultures and opinions that may differ from their own.
